I want to know the name of this equipment with a sealed graduated tube and the purpose it's being used.

I went through all the results of Google, but I was unable to find this exact equipment. I believe someone here should know this very well.

    $\begingroup$ The glass piece, just out of shot, being directly held $\endgroup$ – Beerhunter Oct 18 '15 at 22:46
  • $\begingroup$ Oh, it's the base stand of the equipment. Just a circular glass base which helps you to keep it on a table, you know. Nothing is hidden in the pic. Suppose my hand is the table, it's like now it's kept on the table :) $\endgroup$ – Nimeshka Srimal Oct 20 '15 at 3:52

    $\begingroup$ We use these in one of our Nursing Chemistry labs on carbohydrates. They show that not all carbohydrates will ferment. $\endgroup$ – ChemProfMatt Jan 30 '16 at 5:15

The piece is a type of eudiometer also called a gas measuring tube. The graduations are for measuring gas collected and the bulb is used to hold liquid to assist in filling the tube with liquid.
